Rava Coconut Ladoo is a mouth-watering sweet, made especially in Diwali.Ind Diwali, Indian household will have all types of sweets like Karanji, Ladoo,chivada, chakli,shankarpale and much more.(These are all Marathi words) The varieties of sweets vary from region to region, from city to city.
Even, back at my home my mom and aunty used to make many varieties of ladoos like pithicha ladoo(wheat floor ladoo), Rava ladoo, Rava Mava ladoo, Rava coconut ladoo and besan ladoo.I remember I used to go and open her cupboard for all these special ladoos.And in few days, they used to vanish.She kept on saying I don’t know who is having so much ladoos in few days 😉 No wonder, it was me only.I had a sweet tooth in those days, even today also I have it.But this weight loss culture destroyed my sweet tooth;-( …
Just like me, my son has sweet tooth and always opens cupboard and fridge to find something sweet.
So, I thought I will give a try for ‘Rava coconut Ladoo’ and satisfy my son Aditya’s sweet hunger 😉
Fresh coconut is always best for making these ladoos.In Diwali days, we generally have these in our pantry, so I grabbed few coconut and made some coconut burfi and few Rava Coconut Ladoo.

Why is Rava used in coconut Ladoos?
Rava means granulated wheat, fine flour from wheat.
Rawa or Rava is best known in Rava Laddoo, is a popular Indian sweet which is prepared on festivals like Diwali.
Sooji Ka Halwa/Rava Sheera is another Indian-inspired dessert that has a pudding-like texture. We can make coconut ladoo also, just like coconut burfi wit only sugar and little milk.
Using rava in sweet recipes helps as a good and fine binding agent.It absorbs all moisture from coconut and gives little firmness to these Ladoos.
There are few old and new photos of the same recipe so that I can maintain my diary every year’s recipes.
